Monarch Magic at Gibbs Park

Gibbs Park has been restored as a beautiful habitat for overwintering monarch butterflies.  The park has received countless hours of volunteerism to create the perfect environment for monarchs to thrive.  Our long time neighbor and friend, Mrs. Leslie Gilson has spearheaded the restoration.  To show our support we attended Monarch Magic, a fundraising family event at Gibbs Park.  Nana, Gram and Gramps, and the trio and I enjoyed the sunshine, band and children's activities.

Gibbs is a lovely setting for a picnic.  The park offers shade and is full of towering eucalyptus trees.  You'll be greeted by monarch tiles and information is posted about these fluttering beauties too. Beds include milkweed and a variety of flowering plants.  Located in Huntington Beach across from Meadowlark Golf Course, Gibbs Park is really a gem!
